RISMEDIA, August 2, 2007—By the time Thursday rolls around in the work week, we’ve been so busy that we don’t even realize we’re only a day away from the weekend. Take a few moments to escape your busy day with some thoughts on relaxation, as quoted by some familiar celebrities.
- To be able to fill leisure intelligently is the last product of civilization, and at present very few people have reached this level. Bertrand Russell (1872 – 1970), Conquest of Happiness.
- This art of resting the mind and the power of dismissing from it all care and worry is probably one of the secrets of energy in our great men. Captain J. A. Hadfield
- Nothing is permanent in this wicked world – not even our troubles. Charlie Chaplin
- Put duties aside at least an hour before bed and perform soothing, quiet activities that will help you relax. Dianne Hales
- No matter how much pressure you feel at work, if you could find ways to relax for at least five minutes every hour, you’d be more productive. Dr. Joyce Brothers
- During [these] periods of relaxation after concentrated intellectual activity, the intuitive mind seems to take over and can produce the sudden clarifying insights which give so much joy and delight. Fritjof Capra, physicist
- He enjoys true leisure who has time to improve his soul’s estate. Henry David Thoreau
- If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it. Herodotus
